Comment posted Argylls to be scrapped – along with the best recruiting battalion in the army by Iain McCallum.
I am repeating myself, but there are Tory grandees spinning madly in their graves at this pathetic excuse of a Tory government’s destruction of the British Army. My understanding is that they want the TA to supplement the Regulars. That will never work. With due respect to the Terriers, they can never be as well trained and prepared as regulars. And worse still, what employer in their right mind will employ, or allow their staff to join, the TA? TA troops will be away from their full time job most of the time to cover the short fall, leaving an employer to cover for the gap that will be created.
As an ex-Royal Marine and a (soon to be) ex-Tory voter I could weep

- The Campbeltown Picture House Centenary
Great effort to keep the Wee Pictures going from strength to strength. I remember Pearl and Dean from the Rex as well (just along the road). My only pedantic light hearted criticism of your article FA is that Miss McMillan is doing well for someone who hasn’t been born yet (Tee Hee) …………… “Miss Mary McMillan was also a very special guest, as she had been born in September 2013″
- Heroes reach Inverness en route to start of Heroes UK Challenge, land, sea and air
And good luck to all my chums and former colleagues and others who are mad enough to be doing this marvellous challenge for a fantastic cause
- McDonald’s breakfast advertisement features Argyll
dougie, you might be right, but no-one drags folk from tearooms and cafes into McDonalds. And you can hardly blame them for litter louts dropping rubbish in the street. I live 4 miles from any McDonalds down here in West Wales and still there are wrappers lying on the floor. And in fairness their coffee is better value and taste than some of the coffee chains
- Jock Dempster: hell and healing – two voyages to Murmansk
RIP Mr Dempster. And this government and the last, none of whom deserve to be mentioned in the same breath, should (but won’t) hang their heads in shame at the time it took to present the medals that you and your comrades so richly deserved for your heroic effort on the convoys. How sad that you didn’t get to wear it with pride in public.
- Methadone Clinic issue also to be discussed at Campbeltown Community Council
I have commented on this Methadone subject on another forum and some folk criticised me. I am jaundiced I will admit having spent the last 20 odd years sweeping up the mess left by drug addicts. I am not against methadone clinics per say, but they must be used to wean addicts of the brown stuff. However, I had regular dealing with addicts who had been on Methadone for years, over 20 in one case. Surely the purpose is for it to be used in conjunction with a detox programme to get them off drugs? And they haven’t money for bed for sick ordinary citizens, but they have money for the minority who are addicted to heroin? Seems strange to me, but I am a dinosaur and have a cynical view of the whole drug thing
